Subject: Mt. Sinai in the NW (Jan 07 E-News)
This January Cappella Romana sings MT. SINAI: FRONTIER OF BYZANTIUM with music from Egypt's Mt. Sinai, revered for centuries by Jewish, Christian, and Muslim pilgrims alike.
Northwest audiences will hear medieval Byzantine music not heard in over 500 years from manuscripts at St. Catherine's Monastery, Mt. Sinai, Egypt, including psalms and chants in honor of St. Catherine and from the Service of the Three Holy Children in the Fiery Furnace, Byzantium's only liturgical drama.
Free pre-concert talk at 7 p.m.
For this program Cappella Romana will be presented as a men's ensemble, featuring a selection of some of the country's most notable Greek Orthodox cantors.
Produced in cooperation with the celebrated J. Paul Getty Museum exhibition, Holy Image, Hallowed Ground: Icons from Sinai, Cappella Romana appeared there to a sell-out audience on December 10, and the night before in Irvine, California (as pictured here).
This program also appeared to a sold-out crowd in the "Bibles before the Year 1000" exhibition in the Sackler Gallery, Smithsonian Institution, on November 30.
